Manchester United legend Roy Keane has criticized Chelsea striker Timo Werner, claiming that the German forward misses too many chances. The 26-year-old joined the Blues in 2020 for £47.7 million from Bundesliga side RB Leipzig.

The German striker came up with a growing reputation as one of the top strikers in European football. During the 2019/2020 season, Werner scored a remarkable 34 goals in 45 appearances for Leipzig. But since his arrival at Stamford Bridge, the German has been a far cry from the potent goalscorer that saw him heralded during his time in the Bundesliga.

For Chelsea, the forward has been lamented by many for constantly spurning chances and his lack of goalscoring threat. Roy Keane has commented on the forward's constant missed opportunities at goal, telling ITV Sport (via HITC ):

“He does miss far too many chances. Simple chances. To be up there with the really best strikers in the world, he is obviously not at that level. But he does miss so many chances."


During his time in west London, Werner has scored just 22 goals in 84 appearances. His lack of potency in front of goal has seen him lose his place in Thomas Tuchel's starting XI.
